sometimes while sleeping I experience feelings of not being able to move or talk? Is this an indication that I am having a seizure?

User avatar Hello,Your symptoms are more likely to fit in with condition which features inability to move or inability to talk during early sleep phase or when you are just about to wake up.Though the name may sound omnious, it is a commoner condition known as Sleep Paralysis, and not a condition to worry.
Sometimes this can be associated with unpleasant sensations like hallucinations and could also cause panic reaction.
Reduction of stress and good exercise are the treatment recommended.
Do consult your doctor.Best wishes.
